Hundreds of people join Walk to End Alzheimer's

More than 900 people came out Saturday for the walk to end Alzheimer's.

Walkers held different colored flowers to signify how Alzheimer's has touched their lives - from being a caregiver, to losing someone to the disease.

Last year, the walk brought in more than $100,000 to support services and research.

This year, the goal is to raise $140,000 more.

"It's important for people to be able to come together to see that so many families are affected by this disease, and also for the funds that go toward the care and support services that we provide," the Alzheimer's Association's Lori School said.

NBC26's own Stacy Engebretson MC'd the events at the Johnsonville Tailgate Village.
